Okay Gerry, my question is STILL valid.

Would you continue as computer administrator with a movie studio, if management told all staff, that here on in, the studio was no longer copyrighting the block busters it turned out, but releasing them into the public domain on their opening day, for all to freely copy left right, centre and upside down and freely distribute world wide, including the Space Station.

That therefore, here on in, you would no longer be paid for your work, but still expected to show up for work as usual or you would be in breach of contract.

Gerry, I am not talking about any highly paid person at the studio, I am ONLY asking about YOU as the studio's computer administrator.

Don't change the question please Gerry!

Would you stay and work for free to back up your belief that copyrights should be abolished and people should help create works of art just for the love of it, rather than money?

Peter,

I would never be in that position since I would have never signed such a contract in the first play. My job entails real value added, not some Winfry-like virtual value which has no basis in the real world other than extortion.

I dont care if you would not have signed such a contract.

Once again, would you work UNPAID for a movie studio, so it can release its block buster movie into the public domain on opening day?

You advocate for abolishment of copy rights, saying people should produce works of art just for the love of it.

You forget people have to eat.

THEREFORE once again, would you work UNPAID for a movie studio, so it can release its block buster movie into the public domain on opening day?

Peter

How are you going to pay for food, power WWW access and your 120 channels of TV then?

Our phones are out for 24 plus hours due to a software issue in a number of exchanges controlled by a central computer, they can not even forward my land line calls to mobile, but they got voice mail back, which comes thru to mobile
